A Rare Bird
Donna Tartt’s The Goldfinch 
was, still is, a special book

For two years I’ve been reassured on Sunday mornings to see The Goldfinch on the Times bestseller list. First in hardcover, then in paper. As of three weeks ago, it’s gone from the list. It was there a long time.

The book was a great reading experience for me. For many people. In a recent review of a new book a few weeks ago in the Times, the reviewer referred to The Goldfinch as ‘dazzling’. It dazzled me. I haven’t found a book that comes close to it since. It might be seven or eight more years till Tartt gives us another book. Will I be around? You start to wonder about such things.
